Do you think about being wealthy, do you want to be wealthy? do you work towards it? If yes to these questions, what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see that vision of yourself as wealthy man or woman? wordly wealth I'm speaking of.

What would you do with it?
in terms of money, when I get enough money to be called wealthy I will use that money to make sure I never become un-wealthy, its like the question"you have 3 wishes", my answer to that is give me infinant number of wishes, obviously this is not possible as we aren't talking about wishes but real life scenario. So, I will naturally try to preserve the wealth by making sure I never become bankrupt, diversify my investment as much as possible, having a huge saving, and continue to build it up to the point where even if I did become bankrupt it would maintain my standard of living atleast a hundred years.

Money has no value in of itself, so what will I now use my money on. 4 things:

1. acquire more Time(no point being rich and just working or tied up doing BS)
2. maintain high standard of Health(no point being dead rich)
3. Diin(aah, I will pay my way into Jannah with Sadaqa of course, that will be my focus)
4. Enjoy myself (anything Xalaal, the world is my oyster card)


Time:
I will definitely spend the money to free up some time for myself by making sure that every single mundane task is done for me, thats cleaning, cooking, clothes, shopping etc etc etc, I will acquire private transport, from sea fares to hawada etc, anything that you could possibly think of that takes up unnecessary time I will pay to cut it out from my life, never again will I spend 2-5 hours in a airport, waste of fokin life.

Healthy:
fresh food, drinks, gym, never again will i eat processed food, the eggs i eat for breakfast and the milk FREESH ! etcetc :lol: the air has to be fresh so definitely moving out of london. :|

Diin: read more Quraan since I have much more time, I am a good boy already but I can be better, do more good, and less swearing and what not.

Enjoyingment: very arbitrary, anything that I desire I will acquire instantaneously, I will not be raising my kids, but make sure they will get the best of the best, and spend time with them for my pleasure, I do my best to make sure their are upright muslims, God forbid it but I need an insurance policy incase of an Ayan Hirsi. :lol:


Do I think about being wealthy ? not really, but it would be nice :D

Do you think about being wealthy, do you want to be wealthy?
I don't want to have debt, I want my family to live comfortably, but I don't care about wealth.

Do you work towards it?
No, I just work towards supporting my family and myself and putting myself through school.

If yes to these questions, what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see that vision of yourself as wealthy man or woman? wordly wealth I'm speaking of. What would you do with it?
I admit that when I think of myself post-graduation, I think of a well-dressed woman with her own place and car. But as what I want to do with my life becomes clearer, I find that this image is beginning to change. If I did happen to have wealth, I would give to family, charity, pay off debts, and try to help rebuild Somalia.

Somalis are good at accumulating money. Which is why you see a cabbie or bus driver go to Nairobi and construct a 20 storey luxury apartment complex from savings and ayuuto even though his family is still on welfare back home.

Wealth for me is not working 9-5 for some superior, playing chess with older Kurdish men at the Cafe, eating delicious Sushi at an all you can eat buffet for lunch, having extra time to spend with my family and still earning a middle class income. That is wealth to me. I don't need millions and never dream of it. I just want freedom to live comfortably. I just want dignity. I don't want to be a slave for some boss. I'll be a slave to myself though. And also I need a 2 month vacation every year.

Achieved :blessed:

If any of us are lucky, we'll just hit 6 figures. That isn't wealth, y'all. Wealth, like Chris Rock said, is the white family that owns the colour blue.
